Back to technology: eye toy

I’m glad to see that Carsten also enjoys technical silence. It was good to forget about everything (except good friends, great night skies and naps in the hammock) for some time!


But today technology is back with a vengeance with the Playstation Eye Toy that my son bought this morning (after carefully saving his vacation allowance ;-)

This thing is just amazing: no camera training required, just put yourself in front of the camera in the suggested position and start playing. Lots of fun, and makes me think about lots of non-game applications. Parallels with Ray Kurzweil‘s writings are obvious, and after reading another William Gibson book on vacation I’m almost starting to shiver at the sight of this…
